Q. Will I have to pay taxes on any gambling winnings earned in other countries (UK), if I bring the money back to the US?
A: If you are either a US citizen or permanent resident, or meet the substantial presence test, you are required to report worldwide income. You'll have to pay taxes in the US on that income, but you can deduct any gambling losses against your gambling income. I would suggest getting all the necessary documents from the UK casino and discussing with a tax attorney who understands expatriate tax. There is a US-UK tax treaty which may provide some relief.
